Slideway Kit

Linear Slideways

This is a simple linear slideway that can be motorized. We offer the slideway in kit form or fully assembled. Example applications are video camera tracking and time-lapse photography. All the parts used are available separately on our site. The video below shows the slideway being used for filming using both our Reversible Speed Controller for DC Motors and alternatively a third party Arduino Robot Control Board with Bluetooth.

The slideway is available in 2 lengths although it is possible to modify the length to suit your requirements. The maximum length is 1200mm. We offer the slideway in the following ways:

  • Motorized or manual (unmotorized).
  • In lengths of either 600mm or 1200mm.
  • As a kit or ready assembled.

Manual Slideway

The slideway is available in 2 lengths although it is possible to modify the length to suit your requirements. The maximum length is 1200mm. We offer the manual slideway as a kit or ready assembled. The kit includes pre-assembled linear bearing assemblies:

Motorized Slideway

The slideway is available in 2 lengths although it is possible to modify the length to suit your requirements. The maximum length is 1200mm. A Wormwheel Gear Motor is included, which precludes back-feeding motion when power is switched off. The kit includes includes pre-assembled linear bearing assemblies and pulley/shaft/bearing assemblies. This slideway can be controlled using our basic motor controller to give speed and direction control with a suitable power supply. Alternatively it can be powered/controlled using a third party microcontroller such as Arduino or Raspberry Pi.
